This class was tough.
This class was absolutely atrocious. Dr. Rodman taught us a great deal about the history of computers but very little about the programming style itself. The TA's have informed us that over time they have increased lab time and decreased lecture time in order to assist the students in actually learning to program. The tests are extremely difficult to pass let alone receive a decent grade, and the assignments were extremely time consuming. If at all possible, take another coding class.
I learned the hard way that the only way to complete assignments of such a sort without any prior knowledge is to work in groups.

Advice for students:
This class is no joke and if you absolutely have to take this course, work in groups will skilled individuals from the beginning.
